In 12 games in a row Celtic have beaten Hamilton, but will the tradition continue on August 2 – the answer is in the forecast. What to expect from the match?
Celtic once again did not meet the competition last season – despite the fact that the championship was never finished, Neil Lennon’s team would hardly have lost the title. After 30 rounds, the Celts had 80 points and were 13 points ahead of the second Rangers – it would have been unrealistic to win back such a handicap.
In preparation for the start of the new season, Celtic played a number of friendly matches, in the last of which they beat Hibernian 3-1.
Hamilton failed last season – Brian Rice’s team had every chance of leaving the Premier League. In 30 rounds, the club scored only 27 points and was at that time in 11th place in the table, ahead of the departed Hearts by only four points. In preparation for the new season, Hamilton played only one friendly match, in which they scored a 2-2 draw with Motherwell.
All Football Predictions
Celtic have won 12 victories over Hamilton in their last 12 games
More than three goals have been scored in just one of the last seven matches between clubs
Hamilton has managed to score against Celtic in only one of their last three away games.
Celtic are not starting the new season with their toughest opponents – Hamilton has not been a threat to the Celts in recent years. Nevertheless, the guests will surely “dig in” and try to make life as difficult as possible for the favorite, Celtic are playing their first match in the last five months and they are still very far from their optimal form, so it is hardly worth waiting for a grand defeat.
We believe that the hosts will take three points and the match will not be very productive. Forecast – Celtic win + total under 3.5 goals . In bookmaker Parimatch such an outcome is offered with odds 2.21
